    I think Evans is a great school with lots of parent support. Staff is friendly and helpful and the PTA provides great opportunities for the children. Such as field trips assemblies etc. The curriculum is good and the teachers are available to the parents for help or advice. Our principal is very involved and knows most students by name. She is always out visiting classrooms or on the playground. The children know and love her.
